I think people would assume it is fake if it were that large.

@yanamari:  I am worried about the same thing for you. If I saw a woman wearing this, I would assume it was a white sapphire, topaz, CZ or something. it wouldn’t occur to me that it’s a diamond.

It was fun to picture the 9 carat stone on your hand while the joke lasted! I have to say that with a ring that is nearly 2 carats, I’ve been asked more than once how large my stone is, how much it cost and if it is real. I can only imagine what questions one would get with a 9 carat stone! 🙂

As soon as I saw the title of the post, my first thought was, “No such thing as too big!”  What a lucky lady you are if you can actually get something like that!

I’ve met a lady with a 20c (yes, you read that right) diamond. EVERYONE thinks it’s fake (except for those who know she’s a zillionaire!)

It’s large for a ring, for my tastes, but you have to see if it’s right for you. The shape may help, it probably won’t get in your way as much as a less elongated shape.

I’d wear something this size for a short time, like an evening, but since an e-ring becomes like an extension of your hand, I’d consider whether it suited my style and life 24 hrs/365 days a year. There’s too much variety in my wardrobe, and my activity level would feel impeded… I’ve got a desk job and don’t consider myself a very active person, but it still wouldn’t suit me. Then again, neither would very long fingernails, but other people seem to enjoy wearing them. So I can imagine you may have a lifestyle where this ring would fit right in.

The fact that many people may assume it’s fake may be to your advantage, less unwanted attention in terms of theft etc…. but anyone with an experienced eye and within arm’s length could tell it was real, I’m sure! I’m sure you’ll have good insurance on it in any case, so you won’t really have to worry. I bet it’s spectacular in person!

Another option I’d suggest, as you can afford and would enjoy such a stone, is perhaps wearing it in a necklace or bracelet instead. Personally I’d find that more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing, but also, you can enjoy looking at it and wearing it without it interfering with what you’re doing with your hands, and you can easily tuck it away under a collar or sleeve when you go somewhere where you don’t particularly want attention on it.

I personally think its too big but if you can afford it and you like it than good for you!! Go for it! Yes, people may think its fake because its so large, but if you love it, who cares?

I just don’t think the stone looks that great. The shape and the proportions are off for me. And one of my all time favorite rings from PriceScope is an enormous (yet imperfect) marquise stone in a similar setting. Maybe the ring you tried on is prettier in person.

I know you’re not really considering buying it, but there’s my two cents anyway 🙂 Your real ering is fab, By The Way.
